Plough, Hillside

About this object

This is a reversible hillside plough which was found at Raeburn Farm Waiarikiki. This was an ingenious device for ploughing a hillside. Horses could be yoked abreast or tandem. After ploughing along the hillside one way, the ploughman could stop and shift the mould board and coulter over to the other side. The horses then walked back along the furrow they had made. and the process continued until the ploughing was completed, making it unnecessary to create fairings or lands
